Fifty years ago, Aventura was a swampy marsh a mile from the Atlantic Ocean and a twinkle in a developer’s eye. Today it is one of Florida’s crown jewels. It is a vibrant and diverse community oasis that is located between Fort Lauderdale (10 miles to the north) and Miami (10 miles to the south). It is, in short, a great place to live, work and play. While the City has its own unique identity, it is part of a metroplex with boundless energy and limitless opportunities for recreation, tourism and career. Or you can simply chill out and enjoy sunny South Florida.

The City is seeking an outstanding professional to partner with the City Commission to continue Aventura’s progress toward becoming a world class city. The ideal candidate will be an outstanding leader and a manager with an exemplary record of achievement. He/she will be upbeat, positive and outgoing—someone with a "can do" attitude and who is visionary yet practical.

In terms of specific skills, the individual will have a demonstrated track record of achievement in management, finance, and service delivery through third party vendors. The position requires a bachelor’s degree in business administration, public administration, public policy or related field and seven to 10 years of increasingly responsible experience as a senior-level government official. Extensive experience as a City Manager is required. A master's degree is a significant plus.

The selected candidate's salary will be very competitive and will depend on qualifications and experience. Benefits are excellent.
